I have a huge family,, each of my parents have 11 other brothers and sisters,, so that being said, the person I am talking about I haven't seen since she was about 5 years old. My second cousin (unmarried and 19) just had a baby born with down's syndrome, My mother said after 3 months of caring for her she is ready to give her up, she called me because she knows that my husband and I would consider,, the issue,,I will be 45 next week, and after much discussion with my husband we think we would do this,, but and they are big buts,,lol
I don't want to leave my son "responsible" for his sibling after we die
I really don't want any involvement from my 2nd cousin with the baby,,, for a bit of history,, I had a daughter who died at birth, and 3 miscarriages until finally (SUPRISE) I had my son at the age of 38,, would it be wise to pursue this, or should I let younger more capable people take in the kiddo? I swear I will not be offeneded!
I should add that although I am in my forties,, I most of the time "feel" 21,,lol
